Sonya is part of the new breed of blues and soul musicians, always searching for new ways to revitalize the form.  A triple threat, Sonya is a fiery guitar slinger, soulful blues belter and a songwriter of depth and craft beyond her years.   She is joined by her husband Ryan Taylor (Gtr) to form a powerful guitar duo, backed with an excellent Boston band led by our old friend Bruce Bears (Toni Lynn Washington and Duke Robillard).

Here is what Brent Staeben, Artistic Director of Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival says of their 2017 appearance:

"Sonya Rae was really quite something.  A tremendous lead backed up by a highly skilled band. She exceeded all my expectations and I’d have her back in a heart beat."

The couple has logged many miles in their young careers, from Boston to Austin then Nashville, where Sonya was signed by BMG Chrysalis. You can get a taste of their earlier incarnations in soul and country here.

 The two have worked with or shared stage with artists ranging from Austin queen of soul, Tameca Jones, Gary Clark Jr, John Popper of Blues Traveler, John Medeski and Derrico Watson of the Victor Wooten Band and have made TV appearances on shows such as the the ABC series “Nashville”.  They are two of the finest young guitar players in the scene today and continue to provide audiences with high energy and soulful performances up and down the east coast and beyond.

Here is a taste of what she sounds like these days:
